The view, the park and the ability to BBQ make this a nice place. However, I've been in Irvington for over three years and only gone twice. It's not as well maintained as Scenic Hudson (just down the road), with less parking and TONS of...More

I really love the seclusion this park offers. During the summer months, residents must have a park pass from Irvington Parks and Rec to enter. The one guest who seems to abuse their stay are the ducks. It makes sunbathing on lounge chairs or blankets...More

A quiet relaxing riverside oasis. Well kept park with picnic tabes and benches strategically placed to exploit a number of vistas. There is a special playground for kids that is a discret distance away from the river views. Strikingly quiet atmosphere that affords the opportunity...More

Matthiessen Park is actually a private park and when the town puts someone at the gate to check id (usually on weekends/holidays), only the locals will be allowed in. However, this isn't always the case and it's worth a shot, especially during the week when...More

Irvington is blessed with two riverside parks, Matthiessen being the oldest and prettiest because of its old tree growth. It is the village's "green" in most respects: it's where Irvingtonians gather for celebrations like the Fourth of July and the finish of the annual Hudson...More

A lovely place in Irvington but you had better be an Irvington resident when you try to visit. There is a guard on duty on summer weekends. During the week nobody will bother you. And when the summer is over, anyone can go there just...More
